This is a most common sweet dish in south Indian houses. Any festival the easy dish to make is this payasam. The author explained well the making of Payasam. The different types of Payasams also he explained well. The ratios will vary from place to place. Some people make it thick by adding more rice and less milk, but some will make it thin by putting more milk. Basing on the taste likings the sugar content also can get changed. If it is vermicelli payasam, vermicelli will be fried before adding to payasam. But rice can be added as it is and the rice will get cooked with milk. The vermicelli payasam will be thin and you can drink with the glass directly whereas the rice payasam will be thick and you need a spoon to eat this payasam. It looks like the author is well versed in making sweets and the author can try writing articles about other house-made sweets also. A good attempt by the author and thanks to the author for narrating in detail the dish making.

Among the sweets generally prepared in Kerala there are a few more. Among different Pradhamans 'Paalada pradhamam' comes in the first position. Here it almost like 'panchasara payasam' but instead of simple rice 'ada', a preparation of rice is mixed with milk. This ad a is prepared by spreading rice paste in a plantain leaf and folded will be cooked in steam. This cooked object will be cut into small pieces almost in the size of rice. This will further be mixed in boiling milk and after adding necessary sugar and keeping on the oven a little more time will be taken back. If necessary cashew nuts, etc. will be added.
During the season of Jack fruits some people prepare jack fruit Pradhamans also.

A simple step by step article on payasam. I'm glad that the author has mentioned jawvarisi or sago payasam. It's was one of my favourites, the soft chewy balls of sago were a treat. Many villages in TamilNadu used to sell this along with paruppu/dhal vada which would be a good mid-morning or evening snack time. I remember even adding Horlicks to payasam, it used to form lumps and the taste would be good (for me). At home now we've tired fruits with rava which gives good results with a drop or rose or vanilla essence. Now as adults and people who are diabetics we should be watchful of the calories, roughly 100 ml has 110-135 cals in it. For those who cannot cook, they can try MTR ready made payasam mix.
